“This great achievement demonstrates that a fresh and elegant rosé
from Provence can compete with the best wines in the world. Wine is a
matter of pleasure and Miraval is dedicated to bring the true experience
of Provence in every single glass,” Perrin told wine website Vitabella.
Despite enduring storms and the threat of mildew earlier in the year,
Provence Wines reports that the 2013 harvest in the region is slightly
up on last year, with the return of the “cleansing” mistral wind at the
end of the season proving a “key ally” to winemakers in the run up to
the harvest, which finished in late October.
“Ripening has been slow and smooth and should foster a beautiful
aromatic richness and a nice balance of freshness,” said Gilles Masson,
director of the Center for Rosé Research in Provence.
